Is that when your balls have a good day? Like, it's really humid but they don't stick to your leg or itch?

I too am an Aggie and rode around up there, good times. I've never seen Berryessa that low.

Well, it's a reservoir, that provides water to Bay Area.
It was designed to funnel water. It is it's only purpose in life.

It's a reservoir. It's purposely built to hold water for use later because otherwise the stream/river would run dry in some months. Over a span of months or years, the water level is lower, In some years, the water level is higher.

The dry gloryhole doesn't look like much because it is at the edge of the reservoir and not in deep water.

It's a reservoir filled by runoff from snowmelt in the Sierras in springtime.  There's still time for some snowfall and the snowmelt won't end until late spring - maybe another month.  But as of April 1 the snowpack volume in the Sierras was at about 53% of average.

Vegas is only a fraction of the demand. They have to constantly release a certain amount of water through the Hoover Dam so that Southern California, Arizona, and even part of Mexico can tap into the Colorado River and suck it dry.

Berryessa is not in the Sierras. Putah Creek comes from the Mayacamas and they don't get a ton of snow.

Hoover Dam is a hydroelectric power producing dam. It has to release water to generate electricity.

You mean the glory hole that looks like it's the very top level and this is in no way a historic event and the water is just low right now?  Not really pinging my 'be alarmed' radar on this one.

My berryessa story: set out with a buddy in my tin boat with a 1952 25 hp engine. Did the southern half of the lake, glory hole included, great day on the water and its getting late, time to head back, pull the boat out and head to some eats and brew and call it a great day. Motor overheats cause lower unit was slightly loose. Ok, let it cool then start it up again, this time it seizes up. We had a trolling motor so started back where we came from under an amazing canopy of stars, no moon.  No beer no bud no peice of arse, not a single luxury, the sun is gone and it is cold, and out on lake are weee...a good samaritan gave us a tow about midnight, three miles in the wrong direction so we set out again. Battery gives out about 330 in the morning, so we start rowing in shifts, finally hitting the marina at dawn. Gf yelled at me for not calling from the wrong marina to come get us, didnt wanna bug her. Lessons learned: take food and water. Take a jacket. Double check outboard before heading out. Call gf no matter the hour. Take 2 car batteries...

Davisite here as well. That's pretty low, but I've seen it that low a few times. Markley's Cove must be high and dry too then.

True, but its function as a power plant is secondary to its use for water distribution. Most of the generated electricity goes to Southern California, though, so that adds another reason for them to exercise their water rights:

Mmm.  So it's just got rains to rely on for the rest of the year.

Pretty much every year. If it does snow in the Mayacamas, it melts pretty quickly, so seasonal runoff from snow rarely factors.

It only generates electricity with water release required by treaty. There is no point that water is released solely for power generation.

Or rainwater, whatever.

The point is it's not going dry because of use per se.

Its especially low for this time of year.  You expect that depth toward the end of summer, not during the spring when it should be full from winter rain/snow runoff.  There just wasn't a lot of rain this year in California for the most part.
